Wet Winter

There are some days that look bleak - the sky is dark and brooding, the air is cold, hovering just above freezing and yet there's something about staying inside that makes the impending weather more welcoming.

We've made gear capable of that too - well tested here in New England on frozen MTB trails and gravel roads, as well as training in Norway where the weather changes as quickly as the sun sets this time of year.

Balancing warmth, protection from the cold and wet, and breathability to keep your core dry is critical. The correct layers and essentials can mean the difference between comfort and questioning survival.
